    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Just wondering: if the gyoji had noticed the hairpull in the beginning of the bout, I suppose he could have immediately stopped the match and declare Takakeisho the winner? Has such a thing ever happened before? I was under the impression they only call hansoku when a bout is allready over and when the hansoku directly lead to your opponent falling down or out

    Ichinojo was robbed. The “hairpull” had no influence on the outcome of the bout

    With the promotion of Terunofuji guaranteed, Isegahama will be able to perform his kanreki-dohyo-iri flanked by his two yokozuna disciples

    Haru 1943 had 3 undefeated yokozuna after day 12. And the final scores of all 4 yokozuna were amazing too: 15-0, 14-1, 13-2 and 12-3 (+ kyujo on day 15!)

    Asanoyama caught violating COVID restrictions

    Terunofuji: “I am the only rikishi in history to have been demoted all the way down to the unpayed ranks and make it back to Ozeki!” Asanoyama: “Hold my beer!”

    Last basho, only 10 out of 33 Maegashira achieved Kachi-koshi. An all-time low?

    Does hansoku equal a gunbai sashi-chigai for the (tate) gyoji?

    Never thought it would be possible to put these words in the same sentence: - longest current winning streak as sekitori - Akiseyama
